  • Lee Mi-suk: Actors are More Susceptible to Shock
  • [2005-02-25]
  • "Actors are much more susceptible to shocks than ordinary people because they are extremely sensitive. I used to suffer from depression for 10 years, too," said one of Korea`s top actresses Lee Mi-suk with regard to the late actress Lee Eun-ju, who took her life on Feb. 22. "The degree of my depression was so severe I once thought I was mentally sick. It happened after I got married in 1988 and was taking a break from my acting career. Clearly, I had depression. At the time, actresses had to suspend their careers for a while after they got married. That period was full of agony and stress for me," added Lee.

    The actress says she was able to overcome her stress by getting involved in areas other than acting. She fortunately ended up better off after enduring the stress for 10 years. Lee says she was able to have her second heyday thanks to her efforts not to compromise at the point when many other actors give up.

    Lee made a comeback to stardom in 1998 through the movie `Love Story.` Since then, she has appeared often both on the small and big screen, and starred in the KBS TV2 miniseries `Loneliness.`
